    Hopefully posting some pics next week from Cordova sheep bay area. I'm looking for info on that area now if you know of any. Thanks!

      Taped out at 180 lbs. - 70" - but weighed in at "only" 140. Held the Homer Halibut Derby lead for about 5 minutes.

          I think this may be a Shortraker, but I'm not entirely sure how to tell between and Yelloweye/Shortraker/Rougheye.


          About a 100-120# butt we let go to make babies.

              Interesting sonar pic of a successful China Rockfish release. We picked it up at about 100 feet and had drifted to deeper water by the time we got it set up on the release.

                  Beautiful rockfish. Shortrakers are (relatively) easy to tell - look at the gill rakers. The ones on the first gill are significantly shorter than on the subsequent ones - hence, "short" raker. Haven't caught one yet, but have caught a rougheye. I think I took a photo of the gill rakers on that one because I sent the pics to my local fisheries biologist to confirm the species. Will post if I can find the photo.

                    Rockfish on a fly.


                    My favorite salt water catch of 2018. I've been trying to catch a tiger rockfish on a fly for six years. Caught according to IGFA rules for fly fishing.

                    My biggest halibut to date on a fly rod.

                    And a nice yelloweye on a fly rod.

                      do you jig them up with other rods then cast flies at them when they are near the top or do you just let that thing sink forever?

                        I make my own fly lines (they sink fast) I cast toward the structure and drift toward the cast to allow the fly to sink straight down.

                          This was the biggest one caught at the camp this year. This one was over the slot. 326. Tight Lines. HH

                            Had calm weather on a couple days during my 2018 trip. Got annual limits of these for both my mom and I. Not sure why, but the average size of sablefish that I catch around KTN is smaller than the ones I've seen in Chatham Strait.
